Usage

You can download 'tarballed' themes categorized by application by clicking on the 'Downloads' link at the top of this site or by using wget with the following URL path:

  • http://themes.effx.us/packages/[APPLICATION]/[THEME]

For example: wget http://themes.effx.us/packages/e16/K10K.etheme

If you'd like to checkout a read-only - anonymous copy of the latest themes in the repository use the following URL:

For example: svn co http://themes.effx.us/svn/current

To access a read-write copy of the repository use the following URL:

For example: svn co --username=<name> https://themes.effx.us/svn/current

Your username/password will be the same you setup with this website since a common authentication layer is used for both. Simply having an account on this site does not automatically grant you write access to the repository, however.

A 'self-signed' SSL certificate is used for the repository above. You may also use https://themes.effx.us to protect your username/password when logging into this website. SSL is primarily used to protect passwords during authentication. There is nothing sensitive enough here that requires the use of a CA (Certificate Authority) which only adds website spoofing protection. If you accept the SSL certificate permanently and someone did spoof this site, their certificate would not match so you would get an error that something's wrong. Spoof thwarted, SSL is encrypting, security is OK.

Configuration files should not contain any tab characters. Indentation should be two spaces. I use vim to edit config files and use the following formatting: set ts=2 sw=2 et

Please set the following auto-props (definable in ${HOME}/.subversion/config) to make sure that the following file types always have the associated properties set.

gkrellmrc = svn:keywords=Id
gkrellmrc_* = svn:keywords=Id
*.menu = svn:keywords=Id
*.cfg = svn:keywords=Id
*.xpm = svn:mime-type=image/xpm
*.jpg = svn:mime-type=image/jpeg
*.png = svn:mime-type=image/png
*.gif = svn:mime-type=image/gif
*.wav = svn:mime-type=audio/x-wav
*.ttf = svn:mime-type=application/x-font-ttf
*.txt = svn:eol-style=native
*.sh = svn:eol-style=native;svn:executable

..and don't forget to enable auto-props by uncommenting the following line in the same config file.

enable-auto-props = yes
